so we finna do this?

a federated strike against mega-instances to encourage moving people into other ones to encourage decentralization?

@jalcine I understand this is in my direction but there are 36k active users here, not 290k. Is that still "mega"? Outside of this wave there are 10k weekly active users. Is that too many?

@Gargron @jalcine it's important to recognize that 36k is still several orders of magnitude greater then all other instances. As the difference continues to grow, it's going to start harming the network as a whole.

We have to be thinking about how to keep the network distributed. I'd hate to see .social turn into the Gmail of mastodon.

What about some better tools on joinmastodon.org? Maybe ask new users the questions *before* showing the list of instances?

@Gargron I think it's a bit on perspective. I actually stepped away to think if it's the numbers or the scope of topics of an instance that's giving me a reaction/pause of sorts.

I think it's the latter. But it's also the need to highlight that one instance isn't necessarily the end-all-be-all of the #fediverse

@jalcine @Gargron making account migration actually work (transferring followers and old posts) would help a lot.
